CRPD Warn of Bank Scams

The Cedar Rapids Police Department is alerting residents of a scam they received reports of this morning.

Police say the scam involves phone calls to residents where the person on the phone claims $2,000 has been removed from the recipient's bank account.

The scammer then tells the resident they need to call a number to have the money returned.

Police say residents shouldn't call the number back. They also want to remind people not to give out personal or financial information.

Residents who are called by the scammer should contact their credit card company or financial institution directly to verify the account hasn't been compromised.
